This cake was from my younger sister`s birthday party back in September which I know was from a few months back, but I still wanted to share it since I made it from scratch! Yes I made this cake from scratch! A week or two before her birthday I asked her what kind of cake she wanted and she said she wanted a funfetti cake and wanted it to be ombre and I thought to myself where the heck would I get that without spending a lot of money (cakes are expensive these days!). Her and I like to bake but I`ve never really made cake this size and style before. So after much thought I just said I`ll make it and she was fine with it. Right there I already knew I bit off more then I could probably chew because I don`t ever make big cakes because I know it won`t turn out nice. So I really was careful in making this because if it didn`t turn out right I didn`t have a back up cake lol!

As for the cake and frosting recipe I used Laura Vitale`s Confetti Birthday Cake recipe (link below!) and doubled the recipe so make 4 eight inch round cakes. After it baked I cooled and trimmed the tops to make them even frosted and stacked. And now the fun part, she wanted a blue/turquoise ombre and the easiest way I thought I could do that was by piping a dot of frosting then taking a spoon or I used a off set spatula and putting it against the middle of the piped dot of frosting and then dragging it out/ pulling it out. I saw it on pinterest and it you look it up it`s all over pinterest. And as for the frosting colors I started with white and then just made separate colors. It definitely took a long time to make but the end result was super cute and it definitely a conversation piece at the party. My sister really loved it and I thought it came out better then expected!
